Welcome EAGE President’s welcome Momentum is building for an outstanding 75th Annual Conference & Exhibition to be held at the London ExCeL fairgrounds on 10–13 June 2013. On behalf of the EAGE Board, I invite you to participate in this major international geoscience and engineering event in one of the world’s greatest cities. The conference theme of ‘Changing Frontiers’ could not be more appropriate for the times in which we live and work, both for the global energy story and for the world at large. EAGE continues to change as well, having more than doubled its membership since we last met in London in 2006 and having become a truly global professional association with members in more than 110 countries. Next year’s Annual Conference (2013) will be the ninth consecutive year in which EAGE has collaborated with the Society of Petroleum Engineers to integrate their EUROPEC meeting into this annual event and we look forward to interacting with our engineering colleagues who bring a vitally important dimension to the conference. By the time we gather in London, our association and its ties to sister societies will have grown even stronger, so that we can all move ‘forward together’. The Local Advisory Committee, the many volunteers on other key committees and the Houten Business Office are together assembling an outstanding technical programme and a suite of attractive social opportunities for the conference. Not a day passes by without a major energy issue taking center stage in the world and no doubt these issues will be engaged at the conference. As in all EAGE Annual Conferences, other highlights will be a world-class exhibition, technical workshops and an exciting selection of educational field trips. The 2013 London Annual Conference will be a memorable experience for delegates and family members. I look forward to seeing you there.

SPE President’s welcome Dear Colleagues, I am pleased to welcome you to the 75th EAGE Conference & Exhibition incorporating SPE EUROPEC 2013. With a multi-disciplinary technical programme, we aim to bring together industry experts, professionals, academia and government officials to discuss the current challenges to the energy sector. The theme of the 2013 conference is ‘Changing Frontiers’. As the 2013 SPE EUROPEC Programme Chair Francesca Verga said, “It would be safe to say that the era of easy and cheap oil is about to become something of the past.” As oil and gas resources become harder to find and as demand continues to grow, we will need the most advanced technologies to meet this demand. As members of SPE, it is important that we continue to collaborate and explore new technology for exploration and production activities. The 75th EAGE Conference & Exhibition incorporating SPE EUROPEC  2013 provides the ideal opportunity to share ideas and industry knowledge and as the most accessible city in Europe, London provides the perfect location for this event. Held at the ExCeL London, you will also be close to cultural attractions to complement this exceptional event that will see SPE and EAGE working together for the ninth year in a row. Thank you for your participation and we look forward to meeting you in London in June 2013. Sincerely,

Egbert Imomoh 2013 SPE President Len Srnka EAGE President 2012–2013

Tuesday 11 June EAGE Forum on ‘Exploration to 2050’ 08:30 – 10:30 hrs Chairmen: Len Srnka (EAGE President) Mike Daly (LAC Chairman) Moderator: Julian Rush The London EAGE Forum on ‘Exploration to 2050’ will open up a vital debate on where the future oil and gas plays are likely to be found and hopefully help to unlock the key to their discovery. The industry’s exploration successes over the past 10 years have shifted significantly from the previous deepwater trend that for a time was very rewarding. Today we can see that familiar old plays such as the pre-salt carbonates of the South Atlantic and the dry gas of the Rovuma Delta are becoming a major focus. In addition, supergiant, single discoveries along the Atlantic and East India margins and big finds in well-explored deltas such as the Nile and Mississippi are all

6 75th EAGE Conference & Exhibition incorporating SPE EUROPEC 2013 10-13 June 2013, ExCeL London

contributing to a renaissance in exploration activity with successful results. Although technology has played a role in each of these plays, they are equally the product of new perspectives on well-known geology, which is what will make this EAGE Forum especially fascinating. Julian Rush, an award-winning television correspondent and journalist, was also moderator of the forum on ‘Responsibly Securing Natural Resources’ at the 2012 Copenhagen conference. Senior Executive Managers’ Lunch (by invitation only) 12:10 – 13:30 hrs The Senior Executive Managers’ Lunch is sponsored by BGP.

Wednesday 12 June Conference evening 19:00 – 23:30 hrs All registered full delegates and registered family members are invited to this wonderful evening.

Thursday 13 June Executive session on ‘Global Gas Challenge’ 08:30 – 12:10 hrs Chairmen: Linda DuCharme (ExxonMobil) Andy Hopwood (BP) The following topics will be discussed: •  Difficulty of recovering shale gas •  The environmental impact of shale production Our executive session provides the opportunity to participate in a high-level discussion between industry leaders and top specialists in their field on a key energy-related issue. Nothing could be timelier than our focus in London on the ‘Global Gas Challenge’. The world energy picture has been turned upside down with the emerging shale revolution and its implications. Already in the US the abundance of new supply has triggered a collapse in the price of natural gas and a switch from shale gas to liquid-prone shale and tight oil production. In the UK, press reports have suggested as much as 200 tcf of potential shale gas in a Carboniferous basin in Northern England with a 1-2% recovery factor. The production of this gas will have a significant impact on the the UK supply, but it is by no means clear that this will happen any time soon. There are technology questions to be answered and the need for an informed and balanced debate on the environmental impact of shale has aroused public concern. These are

75th EAGE Conference & Exhibition incorporating SPE EUROPEC 2013  10-13 June 2013, ExCeL London

just some of the key issues that will make the executive session the Global Gas Challenge a very rewarding experience. Please note the executive session and the EAGE Forum are open to all conference delegates.

Friday 14 June Second EAGE Geoskill workshop – 21st Century Training & Education 08:30 – 17:00 hrs The second EAGE Geoskill workshop will focus on challenges and solutions of training and education on an international playing field. The workshop will explore the need to develop national workforces in emerging hydrocarbon provinces and the challenges, methods and tools for the development of local E&P skills. Topics include: •  The need to develop national workforces and talent management •  Changes in the geographic centres of production and workforce mobility •  Expectations of IOC’s for graduate recruitment versus local supply •  Competency management and accelerating learning •  The impact of global communications on training and remote learning tools •  Technology integration and best practice across borders •  The role of universities in attracting talent to the E&P industry •  Industry and university partnerships The workshop format will consist of sessions with keynote speakers and workshop discussions.

Peter Fitch (Imperial College) Pat Corbett (Heriot-Watt University) Sebastian Geiger (Heriot-Watt University) Antonio Claudio Correa (Petrobras)


Ian Jones (ION-GXT) Paul Williamson (Total) Walter Rietveld (BP)

Workshop summary This workshop will explore challenges at the frontier of carbonate exploration and production, discussing the application of new and existing techniques to developments in emerging ‘unconventional’ carbonate plays such as pre-salt, bitumen and tight and low-recovery carbonate fields. Multi-disciplinary communication and skills will be key in producing hydrocarbons at these frontiers.

Workshop 9 Land Broadband Technology Convenors:

Constantinos Tsingas (Saudi Aramco) Guy Drijkoningen (TU Delft) Claudio Bagaini (WesternGeco)

Workshop summary The focus will be on new technologies in land seismic surveying that extend the seismic bandwidth beyond conventional practice. Advances need to be made on the low- and high-frequency end of the spectrum, both in acquisition and processing and this will be the challenge for this workshop.

Workshop 10 HPHT Field Lifecycle Convenors: Jonathan Ovens (Improved Recovery Consulting Ltd.) Tim Whittle (BG Group) Workshop summary This workshop will explore challenges in HPHT development by presenting examples from exploration, appraisal and development, using safety as an underlying theme to inform all aspects of the discussion. Knowledge will be shared by speakers presenting case histories, which will then form the basis of group discussion and sharing.

Workshop summary Interpretation of subsalt seismic images is challenging, because of the limitations of acquisitions and processing and the range of models of halotectonism. This workshop aims to explore the critical elements of subsalt imaging and the impact of choice of approach to the problem of interpreting imperfect images.

Workshop 12 4D Seismic Surveillance for EOR and IOR: Status and Application Convenors:

Colin MacBeth (Heriot-Watt University) Olav Barkved (BP)

Workshop summary This workshop will explore the use of 4D seismic surveys and quantitative interpretation to target bypassed oil and gas and to monitor the success of enhanced and improved oil recovery schemes.

Field Trips

Workshop 14 21st Century Operations Geology – The Frontiers of Pore Pressure Prediction Convenors:

Richard Swarbrick (Ikon Science) Gordon Holm (Tullow Oil)

Field trip 1 Petroleum Geology of the Jurassic Coast: From Source to Reservoir in the Wessex Basin Saturday 8 and Sunday 9 June, 09:00 – 18:00 hrs

(Overnight accommodation is included in the fee) Workshop summary Pore pressure prediction for a new well normally starts with seismic velocity data, calibrated against data and interpretations at relevant offset well locations. Topics covered in the workshop include input to well planning from seismic, pressure prediction from offset well analysis, pressure mechanisms, role of operations staff when drilling high-pressure wells and technology solutions in challenging pressure environments.

Field trip leaders: Neville Jones (BP) Howard Leach (BP)

Decision Driven Uncertainty Modelling

Field trip description The Wessex Basin provides an unrivalled opportunity to see all the elements of a working petroleum system, with live oil seeps, world-class source rocks, infamous fossil assemblages and a range of reservoir formations. During this two-day field trip, we will visit a series of outcrops and consider how the different elements of the petroleum system impact on exploring, drilling and producing oil and gas reservoirs.


Shallow-marine Tidal Sandstones and Reservoir Analogues: Cretaceous Folkstone Sands Formation, Weald Basin Friday 14 June, 08:00 – 18:00 hrs

Workshop 15

David Gorsuch (BG Group) Stephen Begg (University of Adelaide) Reidar Bratvold (University of Stavanger) Tim Woodhead (Shell)

Workshop summary Although uncertainty modelling is widely applied in upstream oil and gas, its connection to better decisions and increasing value for the enterprise is often tenuous. In this workshop, we will explore how uncertainty modelling can be more closely tied to decision making, creating value and avoiding being a wasteful exercise.

Workshop 16

Field trip 2

Field trip leaders: Gary Hampson (Imperial College London) Martin Wells (BP) Field trip description The field trip will visit exposures of Cretaceous shallow-marine sandstones in the Weald Basin, a classic field area within a short drive of London. The sandstones contain abundant evidence of tidal influence and provide reservoir analogues that are well exposed in three dimensions in working quarry faces.

Micro Seismicity – What Now? What Next? Convenors:

Ben Stewart (Halliburton) Daniel Moos (Baker-Hughes)

Workshop summary The workshop will be focused on methods to exploit measurements derived from both induced and natural microseismicity throughout the lifetime of a field from discovery to abandonment and re-use for example as an injection or storage facility. Following a brief overview of current practice, a series of case study examples will be presented. The workshop will end with a panel discussion that looks beyond current practice at new or emerging ways to utilize the information obtained from microseismic activity. For a full description of all the workshops, please refer to the London ‘13 website.

The Student Programme is sponsored by BP, Total, ExxonMobil and the EAGE Student Fund.

Introduction We are serious about students! EAGE presents students with the opportunity to grow, learn and prosper at the next London student programme, taking place at the 75th Annual Conference & Exhibition incorporating SPE EUROPEC 2013 in the United Kingdom. The theme of this year’s student programme is ‘Fast Forward’, matching the Changing Frontiers theme of the 2013 conference. In this day and age technological development is happening at a rapid pace and in order for students to keep up and help change the frontiers they need to fast forward in to the future! The student programme continues to expand and develop, while maintaining the core fundamental offerings in the latest industry knowledge and skill development. The extensive student programme introduces once again many exciting educational and entertaining activities for gaining upto-date knowledge and skills for pursuing students’ careers in geosciences and the engineering industry. The highlights include activities in the student court, as well as student short courses, workshops, poster presentations, trial interviews, exhibition tours and many more! All students are invited to the icebreaker reception on Monday evening, which offers a perfect opportunity to meet and become acquainted with not only your fellow students but also with professionals from industries and universities. We hope to see you there!

Student registration Students must sign up for the student activities they wish to participate in, along with their regular conference registration. Please note that there will be a penalty for not attending without cancellation, when registering for the field trip and the trial interviews.

Student programme overview Field trip A full-day field trip will be organized for students. Further details and updates will be available on the London ‘13 website soon. FIELD Challenge (Fully Integrated EvaLuation Development) The FIELD Challenge promotes cross-disciplinary geoscience and engineering integration within university departments worldwide. This year the teams will analyze a data set from the North Sea provided by BP. The competing teams will be pre-selected by way of a paper contest with the exciting topic: ‘Cross-disciplinary Research: the Way to the Future’, which also encompasses the need to move forward and to change frontiers by looking at sciences that surpass the geosciences scope. The competing teams will be required to analyze and propose a field development plan for a discovered hydrocarbon resource in front of a jury of top industry professionals. We also invite students to watch and learn from their peers and cheer on their favourite team. Posters of all teams will be displayed and the winners announced in the student court. Geo-Quiz One of the most popular student activities taking place in the student court is traditionally the Geo-Quiz. It challenges university students to prove their geosciences knowledge and skills learned during the course of their studies. This year’s quizmaster will be Iain Stewart, Professor of Geosciences Communication at the University of Plymouth and a popular TV and radio presenter who has won acclaim for his awe-inspiring world-famous BBC documentaries on our planet and the forces that shape it. He will put up to 30 teams to the test as they compete to outwit each other, striving to win fabulous prizes!
